All we have to do is believe...

16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave[a] his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.   John 3:16 (NLT)

He was here, He was crucified, He rose again, Christ came to die for you and all you have to do is believe. I am God created, I know that Christ died for me and I am God loved. I know this  because of the life that I have led and just know that I can love you, because of the love that Christ show me. God loves you, Christ loves you, Holy Spirit loves you and I love you.           

 

Good morning, Good Afternoon, and Good Evening

I recall that we were going through the bible and study about how we were supposed to pray without ceasing? Not just when you were in trouble and needed spiritual help, but at all times. I know this is hard for some of us, but let's call to God whenever we need a hand or if someone else needs a hand. Let us start every morning with a prayer, someone cuts in front of you in their car at afternoon lunch say a prayer,  in the evening, say a prayer because everyone is at home without incident. Saying a prayer will become easier over time.  

According to AllAboutPrayer.org, "Praying without ceasing doesn’t take the place of time alone in prayer with God. However, it is a joyful experience to unite with the LORD who lays burdens on our hearts. We can't always stop and kneel, but our heart attitude can still be "praying without ceasing."

Passover, Palm Sunday, Good Friday, Death and Resurrection

1 Peter 1:3 (KJV) 

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 

How have you reflected on the Lord Jesus Christ in His times of the death and resurrection? How is your heart today?  

The Burning Bush

Exodus 3:2 "And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed."

How many people today who saw a bush in flames and not consumed by it, would tell you that they saw God. Just the same as people who would scrub if off and think that it was going to consume it just must be a retardant on it.

The Lord comes at you in several ways: Matthew 25:35-36   "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:   Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me." For someone out there is hungry, naked, thirsty, sick or in prison that we must look at as brothers and sisters. because who is it, God or Angel.  

There is someone you will meet today who is depressed

Depressed - is a common but serious mood disorder. It causes severe symptoms that affect how you feel, think, and handle daily activities, such as sleeping, eating, or working. This is the medical terminology for depression, but everyone has their feeling of depression. I got fired today, I'm lonely, or my father or mother died this week. Many times we will ask how someone is today and they will give a quick response and continue with our day. Feel a little love toward this woman or man and get them to open up and tell you how their day is going. You have to be smart when it comes to a person's psyche on whether they want you to leave or continue your questions. How about today we ask "How is your day going so far" and listen to their answers. You never know when someone is feeling...........?      

Jr's Testimony

This weekend was the 2nd annual Women Conference. Which I thought went off without a hitch. Coming close to the end of the conference I began thinking about finances. The Lord has provided what I needed to get by. So I was standing there and Mary came up to me and stated that the Lord said, "He was going to help me." Then Pastor Clifford came up to me and ask me if I could use a pass for the Trimet buses. I started thinking no I do not need one. Then he told me it was good until the 26th and Jules come over and said that she was giving it up because she had another one. And then I remembered that Mary said that the Lord was going to help me, and it was there that I began experiencing God for the first time with the three of these people who did as God ask them to do on my behalf. Thanks

My Father is always at His work

Paraphrasing what was said in John 5:17, 19-20 it says that God is always at work around us. It states that in NIV and I too am working meaning Jesus and you. Join hands with God and enjoy His work together. Not it's better if we do it this way but join in and do God's work. We are going to have questions along the way which God has shown us by His crisis of belief, where we question some things, but if you know that God is asking, then do. John 5:17, 19-20 "My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working. I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, to your amazement he will show him even greater things than these." So go out today and see where God is working around you and not to you.    

Give it to God

When the day is not going like you thought it would, it time to speak to God!  Just a 10-minute conversation with God can put you at ease. Sometimes that 10 minutes away from your desk gives you the opportunity to gather strength, put everything into perspective, and a little time away gives you time to think. Nothing changed, you are still going to do your job, the only difference is that you gave it up to God. Just minutes in everyday life when you speak to God brings about your spiritual gratitude and you feel God's their with you. 

Let Jesus Lead Our Everyday Lives

Today is the day to surrender it all to Jesus! Take up your Armor of God! We want everyone to know that we are people of God! Do not lose your faith in God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit! We are not where we want to be but Christ gave His life up for all of us so that we can strive to be like Him! Hold your head up high and let Jesus lead us in our work environment, our playtime or let's let Jesus lead us no matter where we are at.     

Yesterday was Valentine's Day....

Yesterday was Valentine's Day, but did you give thanks to the man who loved us first. I was down on myself yesterday because of it was the nephew birthday who passed away at his own hand, so I did not want to celebrate because of the birthday. Someone who told me Happy Valentine's Day and I did not have anyone to have a valentines day with, and she introduced me to the site where it said "He loved us first". I immediately knew what she was getting at because yes, God loved us first and it brought my frown to a smile. Let's all try to thank God everyday that He loved us first, and with His love, we are able to give love to others.   

Where is your Heart at....

Jesus Christ gave up His life so that we all would be saved. He lived among us on the earth, He died for sins against Him that were not true, He rose again and waits for His coming back. When will that be, we do not know. As it states in Romans 3:23 "All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God", but I like you have a choice to make, follow as God would want us to do, or party it up and do nothing. I choose to follow God and through this, I have taken Jesus into my heart, where is your heart at........ 

I'm Fine

"How are you today?" I'm fine, I'm a little under the weather, I'm so-so. These are things that we could here today if we ask the question "How is your day going?".   Let's ask no matter where we are at today. Go with God today, put Him first in your life.

Boost not of yourself

Not once did Paul boost that it was for himself, but for the Lord Almighty. We must never draw attention to ourselves as Servant leaders, but for the Lord Almighty, we must focus on. Let's get out there and tell everyone about the Lord and Jesus Christ.

Testimony

Let's all go out and put our testimony before us. Maybe you say, "I do not have a testimony", but everything that the Lord is doing in your life is testimony. So let's go out and tell everyone our testimony. 

God Loves You

When we go to this day of worship let's not forget who it is we are there to worship. "May I go into the community and worship Him.  Amen" God bless you and may Jesus be your leader in all that you do.   

As We Look Forward

As we look forward to the Sunday service, I want to ask you something. Have you told anyone about Jesus Christ today. Not trying to say we are relaxed in our fundamentals, but everyday we should live our lives with Christ not against Christ. God loves you, all we have to do is except that and lead our lives with Jesus, come follow me. God Bless and prayers go out for each and everyone of you.  

Come Follow Me

Come Follow Me, was as simple as Jesus could put it. Come, where you put one foot in front of the other and slowly begin walking. Follow, to go after. Me, Jesus Christ. Get out there and let everyone know that you follow Christ. 

Feel

Is there someone who needs love or a little pick me up? Then go out and show the person love as God has shown love toward you. Be the person who feed Him, be the warmth in Him, be the clothes on Him, and if need be give Him shelter. We do not know how the Lord comes to us, just be ready. Use discernment and ask them if they need food, warmth, clothing or shelter. 

God Loves You

God loves you, Jesus Christ loves you, the Holy Spirit loves you unconditionally!
